Face to Face Recovery College Courses (18+)
In this short workshop, hosted at the West Yorkshire History Centre, we’ll take you on a patient’s journey from admission to discharge, looking through the exclusive archive collection at what treatments and support were available to people in the 19th century. See how far we’ve come in terms of ideas and treatment of mental ill health, what used to class as a mental health illness, what things we might still use today in managing mental wellbeing and discover some things that might surprise you!
